water fast - stomach acid
I just started a water fast yesterday and I'm having a lot of stomach acid. It comes and goes. Is this common? Is there anything I can do about it?
The symptoms of excess stomach acid/heart burn is actually most commonly from a lack of stomach acid. The water dilutes the stomach acid. If you have anything bitter foods/herbs around try making them come in contact with the back of your tongue(bitter receptors) and it will stimulate the release of stomach acid.
Raw apple cider vinegar mid meal can help also.
